AbstractThe '5.12' earthquake in 2008 and the '8.13' debris flow in 2010 brought huge losses of life and property to Qingping Township. Farmers' livelihoods assets were also seriously affected and damaged. These led to a change in farmers' livelihood styles and reduction in their income. A study of the impact of natural disasters on farmers' livelihoods in mountainous areas would have significant importance for policy making. Based on field survey data from sample households, this study comparatively analyzed the assets, livelihood styles and income of farmers over three periods-2007, 2009 after the '5.12' earthquake, and 2 months after '8.13' debris flows. It presents the following findings: (1) livelihood assets suffered heavy losses; (2) livelihood styles were significantly changed; and (3) the sustainability of farmer income was adversely influenced. These results suggest that, during the process of post-disaster reconstruction work, affected farmers' security, the carrying capacity of livelihood assets, and the enhancement of employment and livelihood choice are worthy of much attention from policy makers.
